A magnitude 6.1 earthquake has rattled the Napa valley region of California. The earthquake caused enough damage to injure dozens of people, and at least a few individuals were injured critically. Napa's city government says the Queen of the Valley hospital has so far treated 87 people who had injuries caused by the earthquake.

The depth of the earthquake has been measured as 6.7 miles, and most people in the area have reported strong feelings of shaking. Since 6.1 is a pretty strong earthquake, there is a lot of structural damage in some areas of the region.

A fire in a mobile home park was also sparked because of the earthquake, and that led to the destruction of four homes.

Upwards of 15,000 people have lost power in the area.

Redcross is a very reliable agency we can depend on in case we are struck by such an emergency. So I urge you to donate whatever you feel to our local Red Cross.
